ZOLL Medical Corporation, a manufacturer of medical devices and related software solutions, announced today that that it will display the LifeVest® Wearable Defibrillator in Booth #300 at the 2014 Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) Annual Meeting, September 14-17 in Las Vegas.

The LifeVest will be discussed during a scientific presentation:
Chingping Wan, MD, ZOLL, will present “Bridging to Recovery: Experience with the Wearable Cardioverter Defibrillator in Patients with Tachycardia-induced Cardiomyopathy," Monday, September 15, 5:15 pm., Abstract #465, VADs/Transplant/Surgery Category, Exhibit Hall.

Each year, more than 650,000 new cases of heart failure (HF) are diagnosed in the United States.1 Patients newly diagnosed with HF have a high mortality rate, up to 40% in the first year, including a high risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD).2 Compared to the general population, SCD occurs 6-9 times more frequently in HF patients, 3 and an acute event such as hospitalization for heart failure decompensation or myocardial infarction increases the SCD risk.4,5 Likewise, an HF patient’s condition can improve from the benefits of optimized medical therapy, which can require up to 3 months or more to stabilize.6

The LifeVest is worn by patients at risk for SCD, including patients with cardiomyopathy or congestive heart failure that places them at particular risk. The LifeVest provides protection during their changing condition and while permanent SCD risk has not been established, allowing a patient’s physician time to assess his or her long-term arrhythmic risk and make appropriate plans.

The LifeVest is lightweight and easy to wear, allowing patients to return to their activities of daily living, while having the peace of mind that they are protected from SCD. The LifeVest continuously monitors the patient’s heart and, if a life-threatening heart rhythm is detected, the device delivers a treatment shock to restore normal heart rhythm.

The LifeVest is used for a wide range of patient conditions or situations, including following a heart attack, and before or after bypass surgery or stent placement, as well as cardiomyopathy or congestive heart failure that places patients at particular risk.

The LifeVest is covered by most health plans in the United States, including commercial, state, and federal plans.
